Strategies to reduce risk of obesity by influencing preschool children’s eating behaviour are reviewed. The studies are placed in the context of relevant psychological processes, including inherited and acquired preferences, and behavioural traits, such as food neophobia, ‘enjoyment of food’ and ‘satiety responsiveness’. These are important influences on how children respond to feeding practices, as well as predictors of obesity risk. Nevertheless, in young children, food environment and experience are especially important for establishing eating habits and food preferences. Providing information to parents, or to children, on healthy feeding is insufficient. Acceptance of healthy foods can be encouraged by 5-10 repeated tastes. Recent evidence suggests rewarding healthy eating can be successful, even for verbal praise alone, but that palatable foods should not be used as rewards for eating. Intake of healthier foods can be promoted by increasing portion size, especially in the beginning of the meal. Parental strategies of pressuring to eat and restriction do not appear to be causally linked to obesity, but are instead primarily responses to children’s eating tendencies and weight. Moderate rather than frequent restriction may improve healthy eating in children. Actively positive social modelling by adults and peers can be effective in encouraging healthier eating. [less ▲]

Network Analysis and Routing eVALuation 2.0 referenced as NARVAL has been designed on top of the Scilab environment. It has been created at the University of Luxembourg within the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT). The Centre carries out interdisciplinary research and graduate education in secure, reliable, and trustworthy ICT systems and services. This module is focusing on the analysis of network protocols. The main goal of this toolbox is to provide a complete software environment enabling the understanding of available communication algorithms, but also the design of new schemes. NARVAL permits to generate random topologies in order to study the impact of routing algorithms on the effectiveness of transmission protocols used by data communications. The target audience includes academics, students, engineers and scientists. We put some efforts to build detailed help files. The description of each function has been carefully done in order to facilitate the end users' comprehension. The module is self-sufficient as it does not depend on other internal/external Scilab toolboxes. NARVAL is running on the current release Scilab 5.3.3. We decided to create a specific classification according to the goal of each function: NARVAL_D_* (topology Discovery), NARVAL_F_* (general Functions), NARVAL_G_* (Graph), NARVAL_IP_* (Image Processing), NARVAL_I_* ( Internet traffic), NARVAL_M_* (Mobility), NARVAL_P_* (Peer-to-Peer), NARVAL_R_* (Routing), NARVAL_S_* (Security), NARVAL_T_* (Topology generation) and NARVAL_W_* (Wireless Sensor Network). This work was carried out as part of the EU FP7 BUTLER project (http://www.iot-butler.eu). [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Increasing evidence connects the gut microbiota and the onset and/or phenotype of Parkinson's disease (PD). Differences in the abundances of specific bacterial taxa have been reported in PD patients. It is, however, unknown whether these differences can be observed in individuals at high risk, for example, with idiopathic rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder, a prodromal condition of alpha-synuclein aggregation disorders including PD. OBJECTIVES: To compare microbiota in carefully preserved nasal wash and stool samples of subjects with idiopathic rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder, manifest PD, and healthy individuals. METHODS: Microbiota of flash-frozen stool and nasal wash samples from 76 PD patients, 21 idiopathic rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder patients, and 78 healthy controls were assessed by 16S and 18S ribosomal RNA amplicon sequencing. Seventy variables, related to demographics, clinical parameters including nonmotor symptoms, and sample processing, were analyzed in relation to microbiome variability and controlled differential analyses were performed. RESULTS: Differentially abundant gut microbes, such as Akkermansia, were observed in PD, but no strong differences in nasal microbiota. Eighty percent of the differential gut microbes in PD versus healthy controls showed similar trends in idiopathic rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder, for example, Anaerotruncus and several Bacteroides spp., and correlated with nonmotor symptoms. Metagenomic sequencing of select samples enabled the reconstruction of genomes of so far uncharacterized differentially abundant organisms. CONCLUSION: Our study reveals differential abundances of gut microbial taxa in PD and its prodrome idiopathic rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder in comparison to the healthy controls, and highlights the potential of metagenomics to identify and characterize microbial taxa, which are enriched or depleted in PD and/or idiopathic rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder.

V rámci projektu BMC-EU (Základné pohybové kompetencie v Európe) bol vytvorený súbor nástrojov odbornej prípravy učiteľov pozostávajúci z koncepcie odbornej prípravy učiteľov so sprievodným návodom na použitie (intelektuálny výstup BMC-EU 4), s cieľom podporiť využitie podporného metodického materiálu na základe koncepcie základných pohybových kompetencií (intelektuálny výstup BMC-EU 3; Scheuer & Heck, 2020). Cieľom tohto podporného materiálu je iniciovať na úrovni pravidelných hodín telesnej a športovej výchovy úpravy týkajúce sa obsahu a metód výučby telesnej a športovej výchovy. Nástroj pre školenie učiteľov obsahuje materiály na realizáciu školení učiteľov štruktúrovaných v teoretickej a praktickej časti. V prvom kroku sú učitelia oboznámení s koncepciou MOBAK, meraním, testovacím postupom, spracovaním a vyhodnotením údajov, ako aj s interpretáciou výsledkov testov. V druhej časti sa naučia, ako získať informácie z diagnostiky základných pohybových kompetencií žiakov a ich silných a slabých stránok identifikovaných pri hodnotení. Tiež sa naučia pracovať s pomocou podporného rámca MOBAK a sprievodných podporných nástrojov vo forme podpornej metodickej príručky, pripravenej na implementáciu v konkrétnych vzdelávacích situáciách na podporu žiakov s ďalšími potrebami v základných pohybových kompetenciách. Keďže cieľom súboru nástrojov prípravy učiteľov je podporiť a uľahčiť implementáciu metodickej príručky pre učiteľov (Scheuer & Heck, 2020) založenej na koncepte a meraní MOBAK (Herrmann, 2018), odkaz na podpornú metodickú príručku MOBAK je uvedený v tomto dokumente.

After the end of the World War II, almost all western countries started reforming their education system, specially maths and science education, as a result of their wartime experience and the new economic and security needs. This trend has been accelerated after the launch of Sputnik satellite by the USSR in October 1957. One of the main subject that has been reformed vigorously was school mathematics, specifically under the name of the New Math reform, created by SMSG (School Mathematics Study Group) in 1958. The New Math reform was a means to modernise not just the school maths education but also the idea of why students should learn mathematics. The beginning of the New Math reform movement in Europe is originated in a so-called Royaumont seminar with the official title of “New thinking in school mathematics”. The seminar was held in Paris, between 23rd of November and 4th of December 1959. This seminar triggered many reforms and changes in school mathematics during 1960s and 1970s in Europe including Luxembourg. This paper is a part of my Ph.D. project under the main title “Travelling ideologies and national adaptations: The implementation of New Math in Luxembourgian school system during 1960s-1970s”. The main focus of the project is to see how the New Math was adapted for Luxembourgian schools in order to reveal how a ‘globally’-disseminated idea about how mathematics is connected to the ideology of the rational and critical citizen has been implemented in this country by translating it into its cultural idiosyncrasy. During the 1960s and 1970s there were many attempts by Luxembourg mathematicians at adapting conceptions of the new mathematics to make them applicable first for the secondary and later for the primary levels. However, the development of my study showed that the New Math reform, unlike in the U.S. or in France, did not have a sharp starting point in Luxembourg, but it was part of a smooth transitional movements that started around 1900 when the country was trying to define its national identity. Therefore, this presentation starts with a brief review of the changes in school mathematics since 1900 up to the end of 1970s when the New Math officially was introduced in the primary level, and studies the arguments and discussion with regard to mathematics education with a focus on the discussion around the era that Royaumont seminar was taking place and after that. The importance of the Royaumont seminar is that from then, the international efforts came to the playfield through OEEC/OECD and intervened in the national demarche. Accordingly the main questions that lead this presentation are: How was the meaning and purpose of mathematics education changing in Luxembourg during the first 70 years of twentieth century? Where did different people or groups in Luxembourg placed mathematics in their expected education at the time when the New Maths movement started in Europe in 1959? Finally, how did OECD influence the development of adapting this suggesting ideology related to education, and how did different people and groups react or collaborate? [less ▲]
